Hailing from one of the music mecca’s of the world, Memphis, Dreekdadon is putting on for all 2000 babies. At just 20 years old, Marcdrecus “Dreekdadon” Adams has a great image, melodic flow, and amazing charisma and wordplay within his music.
Growing up wasn’t always easy. He knew he was a star ever since 12-years old. He started taking music serious after an encounter at a local gas station. Down in Orlando, FL Dreek was at a gas station and a cypher formed inside the store. The clerk heard Dreek getting busy and said to him, “Bro you’re hard forreal, you’re gonna be big, I can see it.”
Dreek didn’t pay much attention to the comment because basketball at first was his first passion. But due to some favoritism by his coaching staff he decided to divert his attention from the court to the recording booth. Using instrumentals from YouTube and local young producers, Dreekdadon started putting his music out via SoundCloud and caught a lot of early attention. While in the studio with a friend, he played some tracks for industry veteran, Thuy-An Julien who immediately knew he was a star and signed on as his manager. When she played the music for Cortez Bryant, he was immediately hooked as soon as Dreek’s vocals exploded out of the studio monitors, and saw the vision that Thuy-An sees in Dreek. Cortez signed Dreek to be one of the founding artists on BluePrint Distribution.
But his journey to where he’s at now has not always been easy. While on the road in 2020, tragedy struck when Dreek was shot when a firearm was accidentally discharged. He fought his way back from near death, dying 3 times on that hospital gurney. With headphones and his iPhone, he continued to hone his songwriting, and rose out of that misfortunate situation more powerful than ever.
With three commercial releases under his belt, “Don Style, Pt. 1”, “Trap N****” ft. NLE Choppa, and “Come Closer”, Dreek looks to make 2021 his year. Expect a lot more people to catch onto the wave, and a lot more music to be released this year!
